With the coming of world wide trial for one day using the new protocol IPv6 one needs to ask how will this affect all of us. bellow is a short extract from article published in PC Tech Authority.
Would someone here understand how this will affect designers and web hosters? I think this could be a very interesting discussion for most of us. The change will come and probably sooner then later. It will involve hardware compliance, and new security issues as well. What more can we come up with?Outside of this security boost with IPv6, companies stand to benefit from IPv6 in other ways.
When talking about the move to IPv6, the big message from tech giants has been around the need to support the growth of the internet. Of course, businesses should care about this if they want to continue making money out of customers across the internet.
“Ignoring the move from IPv4 to IPv6 will seriously hinder the growth of the internet, something companies of this stature should be only too aware of,” said Melvyn Wray, senior vice president of product marketing in EMEA at global networking infrastructure provider Allied Telesis.
